February 10, 2011
Metallica's Kirk Hammett has paid tribute to former Thin Lizzy guitarist Gary Moore, who died last weekend.
The 58-year-old guitarist died while on holiday in Spain. He is believed to have suffered a heart attack.
He also recalled his chance first meeting with the guitarist in a lift in a German hotel a year and a half ago.
“I got into the elevator on the fifth floor and the elevator stopped on the fourth floor and in comes Gary Moore. I just couldn't believe it," he said.
“I introduced myself and had a chance to tell him how much of an influence he was on me.”
Hammett added: “He couldn't have been more gracious to me though, and in retrospect I'm very glad I had the opportunity.”
